It seems that any ambitious club with a few bob to spend are looking to hand their hard earned crust over to David Beckham.
First it was Sven Goran Eriksson’s Leicester side, who wanted to bring the former England captain back home earlier in the summer now it seems QPR’s new owner Tony Fernandes is the latest chairman to ear mark Beckham as the man to usher in the new era at Loftus Road.
According to reports in England the Malaysian tycoon, who has put his money where his mouth is during the early days of his reign, helping to fund moves for the likes of Shaun Wright Phillips and Joey Barton. reckons a move back to England would aid Beckham’s Olympic dream and wants him at Loftus Road as soon as his MLS season ends with LA Galaxy.
He believes that the lure of first team football will be too much of a carrot to dangle in front of the 36 year old especially London games less than a year away.
Beckham has made no secret of the fact he wants to play in the 2012 Games as one of three over 23 players.
However while Beckham won’t come cheap Fernandes is banking on shirt sales and other merchandising to cover the cost of bringing the Londoners back to his roots.
Beckham’s current Galaxy deal expires at the end of the season and He has yet to commit himself to a new deal despite an offer been put on the table.
